Re: The Poker Command Center

There's this thing, it's called TableNinja. Maybe you've heard?

Stacking is also extremely -EV in my experience and being able to watch all of the action and timing in big pots certainly means extra profit at the end of the day. I started out with one 30" and just kept adding more because then I could make the tables bigger and use more stats on my HUD.

At any rate, the few times I've stacked on my laptop I'd say my game was robotic and when I tile I am much more able to take creative lines, make big folds etc bc I'm more in tune with the action.

Re: The Poker Command Center

I prefer my 2 28" monitors with 8 cascading on each screen, compared to 6 tables tiled on 4 screens. That has to hurt ur neck and cut down on hands/hr.

Re: The Poker Command Center

6-10 hrs since im going for sne again this year.

Also neck pain isn't too much of an issue since my chair is raised up so that I'm sitting near the center of the four monitors. I stretch/work out a lot too to keep everything loose since grinding long sessions can really wear on your body.

I thought I could never stack either but it is the only way to hyper table. You know that if you get caught up in a hand you can move it aside with one click?

Even tiling on my 28" monitor sucked if doing it for any length of time. I have multiple monitors and never considered spreading tables across them as just tiling on the 28" directly in front of me wasn't working too well due to the strain.

Re: The Poker Command Center

If you rotate the monitors so that they are portrait, you will be able to fit 8 tables per monitor.

This will allow you to adjust your monitors so you do not need to tilt your head up so high, and allow you to fit your tables onto 3 monitors next to each other.

This will also better fit your field of vision, which has greater width than height.

I can't really get used to my Evoluent Vertical Mouse so I just use it as a backup. It is great for helping wrist pain though.

Re: The Poker Command Center

I had a similar experience with my Evoluent mouse at first since the grip on it is so unique. Once I figured it out though I pretty much fell in love since there is no write pain and the arm movements are smooth and fluid which is important when you have a ton of screen real estate to cover.

I've tried probably 15-20 different mice and would recommend Evoluent as the best as long as you're willing to give it a week or two to get used to the different grip.

There's definitely no question the mouse is good for your arm/wrist. My wrist was hurting for months and two days of the Evoluent and it was fine. I probably would have gotten used to it if that was the only mouse I used but now I only use it when my wrist hurts a little or my other mouse runs out of batteries.

Re: The Poker Command Center

Sorry to say, but you've made it absolutely as hard as possible to play. I have 2 24's and in my limited experience MMT on 2 monitors, I timed out tons (not because of too many tables, but because of the "I have to search for the table the action is on" each time)

Re: The Poker Command Center

I said 6-10 because 10 is the maximum I'd play if the games were really good or I was just in a grinding mood.

As far as timing out, if I had an issue with that I'd simply play less tables. I've been 24 tabling for 3-4 years now so timing out is something I don't really worry about because it is rare for me since I'll leave a table if I run out of time bank for the most part.

Also, yeah the monitors are a little offset and I was planning on doing something about it but the mounts won't really sink into the wall anywhere else since they have nothing to grab onto except in the positions they are currently in. Future plans are to remodel our basement and move the office down there at which point I'll likely rearrange or at least have them perfectly centered. For now it really isn't an issue as far as actually playing poker goes. If you're interested in my results just search me on PTR and I think you'll be surprised to see that unlike most 24 tablers I actually beat the games for a good clip.

Re: The Poker Command Center

Josem,

You made a really good point about field of vision being wider than tall and honestly I'd never even considered doing it that way since I've always used the monitors in Landscape. Anyway, here's a few quick snapshots from my iPhone and if there's interest I'll take some better quality photos when I get a chance.

Also if a mod wouldn't mind cross-posting this thread to BVB I'd appreciate it.

Updated Setup:
